  7. Eat Play Love: London Scout of Scout the City Dishes on her Faves

    London Scout Scout the CityInstagram lights up when Scout the City’s London Scout dons her latest fashion find! Although the four year old style maven reportedly would choose her Elsa outfit if she had her way, when not in princess mode, Scout’s seen sporting "it" brands in the indie kids’ market, from Barcelona-based Bobo Choses to Mexican luxe label Little Miss Galia. Her mom, Sai, serves as her parental paparazzi, posting Scout snaps daily for a dose of city kid style.

    "It all started because my single New York friends were sick of me posting my child on Facebook every 10 minutes (I thought I’d never be that mom)," says Sai. She says Scout the City became her alt outlet for the pics—a digital diary of their favorite children’s brands worn with Scout’s unique and candid street style. Clearly people are loving it: at the time of writing (and after 9 short months), Scout’s amassed a following of 40,000! We are big fans of the duo, and were psyched to chat with them about their favorite spots

    Project Runway's Jeffrey Sebelia and La Miniatura Kids cool fashion line  Project Runway winner and designer behind kids’ fashion line La Miniatura, Jeffrey Sebelia dishes about his über cool kids’ line.

    "First question (it’s on all of our minds!): Given that you and Heidi Klum both have kids’ lines, what are the chances of an upcoming Project Runway Kids show?” He shakes his head and laughs. “She’ll have to really step up her game before that happens.” That’s Jeffrey —the bad boy instigator who had us glued to Project Runway (Season 3) and most recently, Project Runway All Stars.

         “What would be fun,” he continues, “is if the kids worked with professional seamstresses, and you could tap into their minds for design, but a seamstress sewed the garments.”

         Now on his fifth season in kids’ fashion, Sebelia admits that it surprised him how much he connected with childrenswear. “As a designer, of course I love womenswear. I also love menswear and making things
